Identify the impact of Wikimedia projects & content is a movement strategy initiative from the recommendation Identify Topics for Impact. This initiative was one of the priorities (from the initiative cluster H) selected for global implementation during the Movement Strategy Transition events. It was also prioritized by local communities and affiliates.
Content from the recommendation:
Research how our content is used, measuring the coverage, quality, and verifiability of content, the public's trust, and their ability to access and understand our content. This will give us a better understanding of the different ways in which Wikimedia content can make an impact on improving people’s lives.
- Understand how our projects can be misused or abused by detecting threats with significant potential for harm (such as misinformation, disinformation or scams).
- Conduct and support research and analysis to identify topic areas that have a high impact on the world and on knowledge consumers.
- This requires developing tools to analyze content, creating a shared understanding of impact among Movement stakeholders, and developing relationships with specialized partners.
Below are some of the previous discussions around this initiative:
